The Space

The Villa is fully walled for privacy and security, so you can enjoy complete seclusion. There is Air-Con & ceiling fans throughout, a fully equipped kitchen, a large, light open plan living/dining area that leads through large glass doors straight onto the glorious terrace & garden, private pool & bale.
Penestanan’s main road is a leisurely 5 minute stroll away, and boasts fabulous restaurants, cafes and Kue, the local bakery, which is regarded as one of Ubud’s best. Yoga, health & beauty spas all in walking distance. Ubud centre is only 5 minutes away by car, where some of the best food, shopping and health spas in Bali are located.

The Neighborhood

The 'Real Bali' experience: while offering loads of amenities, Penestanan is a traditional Balinese Village. Tranquil, rice fields, and at night the melodic sounds of a Balinese pipe can be heard. There is ample opportunity to mix & talk with the ever friendly & welcoming Balinese who live nearby. And right next door is a small Balinese Warung where you can enjoy a Bali coffee or Bintang with the locals and perhaps exchange some language skills!

  • Thank you. You and your staffs really made us feel like home. We love the place though it a bit far off the main road.

  • Nice villa in Penestanan which has a number of nice eateries nearby and away from the hustle and bustle of central Ubud Central. Bubu Warung is my favourite! However this also means that it is a 5min taxi ride or 15-20 min walk whenever you want to go to town. Nearest supermarket is 20mins walk away although there are minimarts just outside the villa.

    I would say the place has more of a rustic feel rather than a luxury feel. The day beds and garden with the pool are picture perfect. But the place is a bit dusty, perhaps this is due to the off season.

    Service is generally good. Kadek, the head of staff is friendly and can make recommendations on where to go and takes care of our needs. We got her to cook a dinner for us and the meal was lovely. Wayan, our driver, is always obliging to fetch us around despite our change of plans and pickup points. Their services do come at a slight premium over the normal rates but is great for their convenience. Internet connection is great with wifi all around the house and stable. Great for surfing but note that downloading of files is not recommended as it is about 512k to 1Mbps in speed.

    I enjoyed my stay at the Pondok Iman Villas and will recommend this place to people looking for a villa in Ubud.

  • Helen was great host. She gave us warm welcome. She kindly helped us every time we needed help.

    The place was perfect as on the picture. It was very cozy and clean. Facilities were ready. Free Wifi worked well. My friend loved sun-shining pool terrace!! Thanks to Helen, I had pleasant time for rest and relaxation. In-house programs or out-door activities are ready so you could also ask her. We'd recommend villas :)

  • We were staying at Helens - a family with two kids ages 9&11) and the pool/house location made it a special experience! Helen is warm and has a great taste, her place is cosy, clean, organized, well equipped, good internet access. Her staff is warm.
    We'd recommend it.

  • I had the pleasure of staying at Helen's beautiful villas in Ubud with two girlfriends. The accommodation was exactly like the pictures, although the pictures cannot begin to convey the peaceful atmosphere of the villas and the people who reside in the Penestanan area. Helen organised for a driver to pick us up from airport and drive us straight to the area (for minimal investment) and we were greeted and looked after by the knowledgeable Kadek, who made sure we never went hungry and booked any activity depending on our desire for relaxation or adventure. I will definitely be returning to these villas to stay. Thank you Helen for great accommodation and service!

We've built 3 beautiful Villas in Ubud - in the beautiful Balinese Village of Penestanan. Every day we enjoy the beauty & tranquility of being surrounded by rice fields yet we're only 3 mins away from great cafes, restaurants, yoga & spas. We're really proud of what we've created, beautiful spaces for others to enjoy while respecting the environment and the culture around us. I moved here with my 2 teenage daughters at the beginning of 2013. Its a very new venture for me having worked all my life in the film & TV industry in Australia but I'm loving the change! We love living here & hope you'll enjoy it too!
